it was ok
bookshelves: dailylit, non-fiction

I appreciated the nuts-and-bolts description of how institutional oppression worked in Du Bois' day, as well as the section on slave songs and the one on the history of emancipation and the Freedman's Bureau. However, the writing was so flowery, half the time I lost track of what I was reading. Definitely of historical interest, but not pleasure reading.
